CLI tool to generate easy to remember strong passwords

GoPhrase suggests easy to remember but strong passwords.


A password such as "Tr0ub4dor&3" is bad because it is easy for password cracking software and hard for humans to remember, leading to insecure practices like writing the password down on a post-it attached to the monitor.

On the other hand, a password such as "correcthorsebatterystaple" is hard for computers to guess due to having more entropy but quite easy for humans to remember.

Usage: gophrase
gophrase --help

Image used to explain why passphrase are better than using same password is from xkcd:
